Testing schedule and appointments

If you are a freshman or a PSEO student having no college credit OR you are a transfer student but your Degree Audit Report (DARS) indicates that you are required to take parts or all assessment placement tests, you need to read the following instructions carefully and get all required information ready before sending an email to sign up for testing.

Before testing, you should visit our website at Preparation and Sample Questions and do a serious review, so that the results will represent your current best possible skill levels. The maximum you are allowed to retest is three times. This includes ALL test records in your DARS report. If the last tests were taken over three calendar years, you are allowed to retest one more time.

The web-based Accuplacer tests are not timed, but most people can finish both the math and language tests in about two hours. One hour or so is the norm for most students if they take only one part of the tests. You may tentatively choose your individual start time between the session's start time and 1.5 hours before the session's close time. You need to allow yourself enough time.

Freshman/Transfer Test Options

  • Math and Reading/Writing for freshmen or PSEO students
  • Math or/and Reading/Writing for transfer students, as indicated on the individual DARS

If you choose to schedule your test toward end of testing day, please allow yourself enough time to finish before testing session ends.

To schedule a test

Registerblast is where to schedule your Accuplacer placement tests. Based on your calendar, you can sign up for a date and time that works best for you. There are some instructions that you should follow, but it should be fairly straightforward.

If you cannot come to any of these sessions and need to take the tests somewhere, you need to go to the page Voucher Request and Other Arrangements for details and follow the instructions there.

Note: The Fall 2018 testing schedule will be published in early September 2018.
